I think when he wrote Oragaharu( My Spring ) , his energy peaked at the tope in his life.So he was sure to have self-respect in his haiku creation.
In this haiku he said that he is ashamed to come to Edo and live in there, but he didn't think so. In Edo he have been accepted high evaluation in the field of haiku . I could see his secret pride as haikuist in this haiku .
